The main goal of a start-up is not just to innovate. There needs to be a clear message, with the company values at the forefront of everything they do. This is what will grab the attention of investors. So, what Portuguese start-ups are doing this?


This one is definitely interesting for our team! This start-up operates in the artificial intelligence space, providing a platform that transforms monitoring data into useful information a company can use to make decisions. With engineer’s work-life balance in mind, they also strive to create a friendly community.
